That means it's just me running the whole site...

Should I be scared?
Should I ask for a raise/promotion?
Should I keep my head down and plow through this?
Should I start looking for another job?

I agree. Except the raise/promotion thing...only bring that up when someone comes to you about giving you added responsibilities going forward. Refer to it as compensation instead of a raise.

should you be scared? hell no. you should just run with scissors. it's fun.

Love the job... and special people on the board should love that I love it.

No idea, the boss' boss, well, he doesn't know what we do alot... he thinks the intreweb is a magical place where things just happen.

If they give me added responsibilites, I'll definately ask for more money.

You know me, I'm bulletproof.

okay, if he knows nothing about the area you are working in, make sure he thinks whatever you are doing is very unique and hard and is hard to replace.

Working on that now. But I've got my ace in the hole... Kirkman had Mary Jane mention the company in Marvel Team Up 14, so he thinks I'm pretty cool for that.
